The actual item is 11" x 7.25", printed on a slightly textured paper & mounted onto a thick stiff card.
I think it may have been a calendar, as there are two pasted tapes on the back - top & bottom - where
you can see evidence of a ribbon attached, one for a loop at the top & two strips at the bottom
(which I've seen before for attaching a free-hanging calendar). Also on the bottom tape is printed
"By Official Permission of Ye Ancient Order of Froth Blowers. Printed by Valentine & Sons, Ltd., Dundee."
I don't know the exact date for this, but would guess around 1930.
